THE SAGA OF THE SENIOR CLASS 



Listen my friends the story I'll tell 
Of the Senior Class I know so well. 

I really think it would save time 
To tell our clever deeds in rhyme. 

In '49 on a bright fall day 

We came to high school four years to stay. 

Thirty-four started a promising career; 
We made our mark in one short year. 

Initiation by the class of '52 
Made our admission tried and true. 

For our president we had Bill Wood; 
Elaine O'Brien as his helper was good, 

Don Bailey was the scribe of our news; 
Murph and Sully collected our dues. 

On the council were Ronny and Phyl 
Watchful of our interests and will. 

Don, Tommie, Ronny and Dick in the band 
Played catchy tunes in uniforms grand 

Mary Williams waved a new baton 
To guide the natty bandsmen on. 

Woody, Ed Carey and Dick Tanner 
Played basketball in a deft manner. 

Baseball distinction that year was won" 

By Carey, Wood, and the Brothers Lampron. 

President Sample in second year 

Kept our class performing in high gear. 

Ed Carey helped as vice president; 

Phyl kept the notes and Ann watched the mint. 

On Council were Ronny and Nancy 
Who sponsored activities fancy. 

We gave Freshmen initiation; 
For our stunts they gave us ovation. 

Cheerleader Nancy made evolutions; 
Phyllis went in for substitutions 

Dick Lampron joined the basketball set; 
Raynor played baseball with the quartet. 

Majorettes Mary and Barb cut capers; 
Our honor rolls just filled the papers. 

In Sophomore year our teachers learned 
What joyous talent within us burned. 

For our Ron-Mil-Car Hillbilly band 
Gained deserving fame throughout the land. 

Our Junior social life was vital 
And worth a place in this recital 

Our dances each a great event 

To which the school's elite all went 

Carolyn was named queen of the prom; 
Ann Murph and Barb helped her carry on 

Ron and Don ran the class with a dash. 
Nance kept the records — Murph took the cash. 



Our councilors Tommie and Bill Wood 
Suggested programs that were good 

The court and baseball diamond claimed 
The dextrous players before named 

Our Tommie, Ruth, Ann Murph and Phyl 
Played basketball with a zestful will. 

The cheers were led by Nancy and Ann 
Assisted sometimes by Phyllis Van. 

Barbara Lloyd managed the girls' team; 
Mary Williams gave assistance serene. 

Our class welcomed an extra member 
When June joined us in November. 

To help our Lenox High majorettes 
Mary and Barb performed pirouettes. 

Ann Murphy played her sweet glockenspiel; 
The newly dressed band has much appeal. 

We answered the BU replacement tests 
As cleverly as a class of vets. 

Our Junior year seemed without equal — 
But let's get on to the sequel. 

As Seniors we returned to Room 1 
Anxious to combine hard work and fun. 

Our class officers showed such perfection 
We voted them reelection. 

Our class rings were the envy of all 
When they arrived early in the fall. 

To give the bachelor girls a chance 
We sponsored a Sadie Hawkins dance. 

The staging of Beauty and the Beef 
Showed our abilities beyond belief. 

Nancy, Barb, Ann and sub Carolyn 
Cheered our plucky athletes to win. 

Mary Williams strutted with the band; 

Ann and Don Bailey played harmonies so grand. 

Ann Murphy chosen Snow Frolic queen 
Looked quite regal in taffeta green. 

Hot lunch tickets were sold by Frances; 
Barb and Ed planned Community dances. 

Our Tommie, Barb, Dick Tanner and Ed 
In basketball their respective teams led. 

Planning and financing our Year Book 
Much time and ingenuity took. 

We wish as now we go to press 
The Sesquicentennial huge success. 

Our High School days will soon be through 
As we look back, they've been all too few. 

In valedictory we do proclaim 
Loyalty to our Alma Mater's name. 

Frances Vagnini

CLASS WILL 

We, the Class of 1953, of the Lenox High School being seventy-five per-cent sound 
in mind and body, as attested by the faculty of said school, do hereby will this our last will 
and testament, to be submitted to the following: 

Article I 

To the Administration and Faculty, we leave courage to carry on through the coming 
years with the lower classes our deep appreciation of their constant interest in our individ- 
ual welfare and our high esteem of their patience and understanding. 

To the Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior classes, we leave the will to persevere so 
that they too may someday graduate. 

Mary Williams gives her neatness to all girls who look disheveled in the morning. 

To Michael Spafford goes Bob Vincent's ability to handle big trucks. 

Carl Rayner and Milton Sample just leave Lenox High with a "BANG". 

June Verchot bestows on Joan Bontell her ability to hold a man. 

Donald Bailly bequeaths his humorous quotations to Richy Whalen.

interested. 

Nancy Stickles leaves her in-coming and out-going letters to Pat Roche. 

Dick Lampron has to leave Barb Wheeler, but he hates to. 

Ann Murphy bequeaths her skill in collecting dues to the treasurer of the Class of '54. 

Dick Tanner bestows his skill in evading study halls on anyone who has the gumption. 

Barbara Llovd wills her dark hair and laughing eyes to Josephine Di Conza. 

To Charlie Holmes goes Phyllis Van Alstyne's ability to fix flat tires.

Reynolds.

CLASS PROPHECY 



One day we met a professor tall, lank and lean. He 
said we should see into the future with his time ma- 
chine. At first we thought him eccentric with his crazy 
spiel. But when we went to his workshop, we found he 
was for real. As we slipped into the machine with the 
dial on '63, we never dreamed of the sights we were 
about to see. 

Milton and Carl like Jerry and Dean 
Can be seen on any T. V. screen. 

Phyllis and Bun are travelin' around. 
No telling where they can be found. 

Murph and June are nursing at St. Luke's, 
They cure everyone from paupers to dukes. 

Cookie is happily married to Joe — 

She pulls the plow, while he hollers "Whoa!" 

Baseball is still Woody's best game; 
We saw his plaque in the Hall of Fame. 

Mary Williams makes clothes so fine; 
Needless to say they're her own design. 

Ronny Marshall is a great engineer; 

Far away places are now made near. 

Mary Pensivy is now a dance teacher; 

In New York night clubs she's the big feature. 

There's Bob Vincent — he's now very chipper; 

He flys coast to coast in a big silver clipper. 



Barb and Dick have the perfect marriage; 

You have three guesses who's pushing the carriage. 

Donny Bailly now manages the Knicks, 

The winning team he always picks. 

Ruth Ostrander's now a rodeo queen; 

Her palimino's the finest ever seen. 

Frances Vagnini's a clever chick; 

Of secretarial positions she has her pick. 

Nancy Stickles leads a life serene; 

She married the owner of Berkshire Screen. 

Giz is now producer of NBC T. V. 

And you can bet he's happy, happy as can be. 

Rachel is now a socialite, as busy as can be; 

She gives the swankiest parties, that you will ever 

see. 
Eddie is still a bachelor bold; 
He plays pro basketball, we are told. 
Who runs food stores? Dick Lampron of course — 
Selling all meats from muskrat to horse. 
Tommie Di Conza now leads a band; 
And plays the hottest jazz in the land. 

Suddenly like a mirage they were gone. And we 
were back at the break of dawn. It was hard to believe 
the things we saw, and in our mind a doubt began to 
gnaw. Our story we will try to sell, if it is true, only 
time will tell.

CLASS SONG 

TUNE of "Till We Meet Again.' 

There's a thought in the heart of each Senior 

Each one tells it now with a sigh; 

Our four years are done 

We've had lots of fun 

So we sorrowfully whisper good-bye. 
We are leaving dear old Lenox High, 
Now's the time for us to say good-bye; 
We'll miss our friends and teachers true 
Who helped us all the four years through. 
Oh, Lenox High, our Alma Mater dear, 
In our hearts forever through the years 
We'll remember you in all we do 
As we say adieu. 

Tommie Di Conza

THE SESQUICENTENNIAL SENIOR CLASS 

Presents 




These pictures may be old and 
faded but the memories are still 
strong and vivid. 



Twenty-six years after our nation began — thirty- 
six years after the incorporation of Lenox as a town, 
Lenox Academy, the first institution of secondary in- 
struction in Berkshire County, was erected on Main 
Street. 

Chartered to furnish academic and classical educa- 
tion to youth of both sexes, the Academy held front 
rank among the country's similar institutions. Its 
founders were men notable for their intelligence, char- 
acter and good influence, who believed in education 
as a necessity for the state as well as for the individual. 
Not only were the classics and mathematics taught but 
"what is of more worth — truth and courtesy, and love 
of home, friends, country and God." The teachers, 
among whom were Levi Gleason, a Stockbridge native 
and John Hotchkin, founder of the Lenox Library 
Association, took a personal interest in the individual 
capacities and needs of their students, who came from 
most every state of our union and even beyond our 
national boundaries. 

1851 

Mr. Mathew H. Buckham became principal of the 
Academy. Mr. Buckham was later chosen President of 
the University of Vermont, 

1866 

In accordance with an act of the Massachusetts 
Legislature, the trustees of Lenox Academy gave the 
Town of Lenox a portion of their annual income and 
the use of the Academy building for the establishment 
of a high school, under the supervision of the noted 
Latin scholar, Mr. Harland H. Ballard. 



1905 

The Ninth grade was added to furnish a broader 
and deeper foundation for pupils and to raise the 
standard of the school. 

1909 

On the twenty-ninth of November, the pupils of 
Lenox High School and their three teachers, moved 
from the Old Academy to occupy the present building 
which had just been completed. 

1913 

Certification privilege was granted to Lenox High 
permitting graduates of approved standing and char- 
acter to enter Normal schools and colleges without 
examination. 

1915 

Five regular courses of study were offered — Col- 
lege Preparatory, Technical, Normal Preparatory, Gen- 
eral and Commercial. 

Class Day Exercises for Seniors were held for the 
first time. 

1917 

Twenty out of fifty — or forty per cent of students 
graduating during the past two years — entered institu- 
tions of higher learning. 

1919 

A service flag was presented to Lenox High in 
honor of the school's heroes of World War I. 



1880 

The High School removed its headquarters to a 
new four room building of its own. This new build- 
ing was afterwards enlarged to become the old Center 
School. The Academy reopened with Dr. Ballard as 
Preceptor, who acted in that capacity until 1886 when 
the Academy was discontinued as an indepedent school 
because of competition with the more generously sup- 
ported academies and high schools. 

1892 

The High School, which had outgrown its quarters 
in the old Center School, was again installed in the 
Academy building with Mr. Lyman M. Rowland, a 
Williams College graduate, as Principal. The first grad- 
uation exercises for a class of three girls were held 
that year. The salutatory address was delivered in Latin. 

1893 

The course of study listed three curricula — Latin 
Scientific with emphasis on Latin, mathematics and 
science (zoology, astronomy, botany, chemistry, and 
physics). Classical — stressing Latin and Greek; Eng- 
lish — emphasis on English and French. Bookkeeping 
was taught in the winter of the second year. 

1902 

Pupils who maintained a general average of 90% 
in their studies were accorded the privilege of entering 
Mt. Holyoke College and Oberlin on the principal's 
certificate. 

26 Alumni Association held its first regular meeting 
in July and fifty-four of the seventy-seven graduates 
were present. 



1921 

High School was placed in Class "A" by the State 
Department of Education — a rating which it has 
always maintained. 

Elimination of ninth grade brought about greatly 
increased enrollment in Freshman Class. 

1924 

Basketball team won Southern Berkshire champi- 
onship in a tie game with St. Joseph's of Pittsfield. 

1934 

A course in educational and vocational guidance 
introduced for Freshmen. 

1935 

As a result of the destruction of Center School by 
fire, high school students attended only a morning 
session to enable elementary pupils to utilize the build- 
ing in the afternoon. 

1936 

Lenox High defeated Pittsfield and Williamstown 
in Berkshire County debates and held, according to 
points, the best record of any school in the county. 

A course in typing offered for classical and scien- 
tific seniors. 

1938 

Lenox High debating teams won over Pittsfield 
and Adams High School in county debates. 



1940 

The baseball team won the County Championship 
and was given a trip to New York by enthusiastic fans. 

1944 

Class of 1944 presented to Lenox High School an 
honor roll inscribed with names of over 300 former 
members who were serving in the armed forces. 

1946 

Lenox High won the Southern Berkshire Baseball 
Championship and was invited to participate in the 
Western Massachusetts Scholastic tournament where it 
advanced to the finals by defeating Pittsfield High and 
Worcester Commerce. Although defeated by Holyoke, 
Lenox was the smallest school in the history of the 
tournament to advance to the finals. 

1948 

A gymnasium, auditorium and new science and 
home economics rooms were added to the original 
building to provide much needed facilities. 

1949 

On May 17, the dedication of the new addition 
took place. 

The school published a Handbook to aid pupil 
orientation. 



1952 

An auto mechanics class was added to the high 
school program. 

Lenox High School inaugurated a One- Act Play 
Festival for Berkshire County Schools. 

One can say that Lenox High School is a successor 
to the old Academy since it has maintained the same 
ideals of training both for higher education and the 
immediate problems of life. Although the high school 
is not primarily a college preparatory, as was the old 
Academy, its graduates trained in the college prepara- 
tory, technical, commercial and general curricula have 
maintained high scholastic standards and have achieved 
honor for their Alma Mater in every kind of profes- 
sion and activity including law, religion, architecture, 
medicine, teaching, banking, business, technology, 
iournalism, areonautics, engineering, basketball, base- 
ball, music and art. 

In the two World Wars, Lenox High contributed 
a great deal in service, in training offered and in the 
large number of graduates who joined the armed 
forces. We are proud of the blue stars and the gold 
stars on our honor rolls. 

This, then is Lenox High of yesterday and today. 
As for the school of tomorrow — may she grow in 
spirit, keep the faith and pass on a tradition better and 
more beautiful than was transmitted to us. 



1951 

The National Audio-Visual Aids Association 
awarded the high school a certificate for outstanding 
achievement in the use of audio-visual aids. 

An auto driving course was introduced and for 
this program Mr. Lenges Bull presented the school 
with a new Chevrolet.
